    Although we received a lovely welcome pack, the location was good for the ferry and it was well equipt, it was rather dated- 1980's. There were cobwebs here and there, the garden furniture was in tatters, some of the beds were rather hard, but it did have a good TV and wifi. The property is marketed as being the former coaching house of Osborne House, however there is nothing at all Victorian about this property except the brick work. Everything is old fashioned and not in an antiquey way, the only original item maybe the living room door. It's such a shame that everthing Victorian has been removed.
